The Harvest Moon series is one that I've always met with a bit of reservation. I can pick up the game and play it with relative ease, it's not hard to figure out what's going on or what you have to do. It's just hard to get past the fact that it's a videogame about farming. What was I farming for? Why was I farming? To be the best farmer? As a result my relationship with the game is a little touch-and-go, and as each title tries to think of a new way for players to farm it's hard not to wonder if perhaps they're out of ideas.
